having stayed at the scotsman only days after it's initial opening and on numerous trips to Edniburgh since, I am sorry to report that this fine hotel is losing its edge. gone are the traditional tweeds for the staff and replaced by black shirts and suits or vests and red ties...
kinda like a cheesy sopranos look if you ask me. desk staff have also lost their way regarding accomodating hospitality. snippy young aussie checked me in with no regard for how many times in the past I have chosen to spend hundreds and hundreds of business dollars/pounds with them. the place is starting to look run down with fraying rugs, chipped paint on corners of doorways, etc. come on, guys, get back to work and earn the 5-stars again.
